Dave Phillips' race reports:

24/08/13 1500 hrs.
Ras Beca, Presili Mountains, Pembs/Cardigan border. 5 mile fell/mountain/peat bog/marsh/swamp/heather/gorse run. No proper route!

This was the 36th running of this stunning event in nhe middle of a field in the middle of nowhere. Yet c100 competitors turned up plus the same number for the various age category 1/2 mile races for children. All met in one large field with 2 loos and streams to wash in afterwards. Same format for 36 years now. Very hard 1.5 mile start all uphill to the summit ridge then fun and games 'till the end plus 3 falls in the bogs and marsh. Roll on next year.


The winner is given an axe and a lady's dress as he crosses the line and he demolishes a plastic gate held up for him. Why? google the Rebecca Riots
and all will be revealed.

25/08/13 1100 hrs.
St Clears 10k, Carmarthen.

Another hot day on this very hilly testing course with c85 runners. Felt a bit shattered from Ras Beca so I deliberately acted with 5 others as mass
sweepers! At least this was on the road.

Please contact Laurence if your result is missing or you would like to add photos or a race report to the website.
